Sail Date: Oct 2019
Cabin: Spa Balcony Stateroom

WE choose this cruise because of the interesting itinerary. Been on lots of NCL cruise and this ship was so flawed.

NOW the smoke issue. The ship is stale with smoke and there were not that many people smoking now. The Casino is in the middle of the ship and the smoke goes everywhere on Deck 6,7, and 8. You can't go to most restaurants in the area without the smell of smoke.

SO after 10 Days, my allergies were in full bloom. There was sick people everywhere with colds. DR visit was $ 199 for an appointment. BUt the medical staff was good

Cabin Review

Spa Balcony Stateroom

A cabin steward that was not very good. He was pleasant but lost our laundry for 4 days, but did find it after we asked him twice. Had little to do in our cabin because we are neat folks and I was sick for 8 days on the cruise and stayed in my room a fair amount. Rarely cleaned when we put our cleaning light on and often didn't have our cabin clean while we were out all day. Cabin fine, but an old mattress.

Port Reviews


Loved it. 3 days and we did lots of things on our own.

Cobh (Cork)

Jamison Distillery - lots of fun, and time for lunch after the tour.

Ponta Delgada

wasn't able to dock because of high winds. Not the ships fault.

Great Stirrup Cay

Day on the ship with massage for us.
